The Word: Was Tila Tequila hospitalized for a brain aneurysm, drug overdose or suicide attempt?

It’s always the demure ones.

Was Tila Tequila’s recent hospitalization due to a brain aneurysm, a drug overdose or a suicide attempt? Whatever the reason, the former reality star is all kinds of WTF.

Radar Online is saying that a brain aneurysm made her “think irrationally” and ingest “two bottles of unspecified heavy-prescription drugs.” 

“Tila threw up all over her bed after overdosing and felt like she was dying. She was screaming for help, and in desperation broke her bedroom window and attempted to jump out,” a source says. “A friend came over after getting a strange text from her and found her convulsing on the bed. He called an ambulance.”

Tequila was apparently treated at two different hospitals over a week’s span, but she’s not out of the woods yet. “She still can’t fully speak properly,” the source says. “It’s sad to think she may have some permanent brain damage.” But TMZ.com says all the drama was caused by a suicide attempt and that she’d been trying  “kill herself all week” per a source.

We’ve said it once, we’ll say it a million times: Mamas, don’t let your daughters grow up to be reality TV stars.

Iglesias won’t put a ring on it

Enrique Iglesias has been happy with girlfriend Anna Kournikova for more than a decade — but don’t expect him to put a ring on it.

“I’ve never really thought marriage would make a difference. I don’t think you love someone more because of a piece of paper,” he tells Parade. “It’s not taboo to have kids and not be married. What makes a difference is that you’re a good parent, period.”

Note to Enrique: You might want to lock a fox like Anna Kournikova down, my friend.
